Funds will reduce Marmor Rd risks
THE Department of Main Roads has applied for Federal Government funding so it can reduce the risk of accidents at the Marmor Service Station.
A Morning Bulletin report on Saturday highlighted the campaign by locals to widen the Bruce Highway and put in dedicated turning lanes.
Main Roads said it applied for $3 million for turning lanes, intersection upgrading and new safety signs, but was turned down. It has resubmitted its request for the 2010/11 round of funding under Building Australia.
